1021_HOW SICK ARE YOU? (2)

When you feel sick, should you stay home?



John is on leave this week.

They’ll a lot more upset with you.

If you’re A’s position,…

You can always count on Joseph for good advice.


[Chelsea & Chip]

T: You know, Barbara, that sore throat could be strep throat.

B: I know thing it’s anything that serious.

T: Well, you won’t know for sure unless you go to the doctor.

B: But I don’t have time. I have an important meeting today.

T: You do know that if it’s strep throat, you’re very contagious.

B: I hadn’t thought of that. But, I can’t stay home. I don’t have any sick left.

T: If you go to the doctor, maybe you can get a doctor’s note to satisfy your boss.

B: But the people in my office are counting on me to get some things finished up today. They’ll be upset for me if I am not for work.

T: They’ll a lot more upset with you if you show up and you make them sick. Why don’t go to the doctor first and see what he says? If he says you’re not contagious, maybe you can go on to work. But if it’s strep throat, she’ll probably tell you to take antibiotics for 24 hours before going back to work.

B: Maybe you’re right. I rest easier knowing I am not contagious. I’m sure my coworkers will too.
